Primary Research

Our main research publications include reports, working papers, discussion papers, contributing papers and surveys. The overarching goal of these publications is to identify, understand and discuss major initiatives that need to be put in place to ensure New Zealand is in a strong and flexible position for the year 2058.

Supporting Work

These are opinion-based and visual publications that help support our major research. We use a range of mediums to connect with people and encourage engagement.

Books and Journals

These publications are key outputs from workshops, events, and other areas of interest the Institute pursues. They are often developed collaboratively, and are available for purchase from our shop here.


These publications share our progress, work plans, methods and thoughts as they evolve over time. They also include requests for information, such as OIAs, which aid our research process.
